‘Pokemon GO' has been updated by Niantic Labs on Oct. 24. Android users were issued the 0.43.3 update while iOS users got the 1.13.3 version for their Apple devices. Prior to the release, the game company announced the arrival of the new updates on Pokemon GO website on Oct. 23.

One of the changes that the "Pokemon GO" update brought was the way of knowing how long an egg has to be hatched. In the description, it says, "Professor Willow discovered that Eggs have different patterns depending on the distance required to hatch them."

Niantic also added type icons, a feature that will make it easier for trainers to identify the type of each Pokemon because it is displayed on the information screen. Moreover, an improvement for the "Pokemon GO" Plus users have been granted and this feature is the low battery indicator. This was added in the game's app update since trainers have been asking for it for a while now.

What's more, as the Halloween season approach, Niantic Labs is offering a nice trick or treat for "Pokemon GO" players. This coming Oct. 26 to Nov. 1, trainers can gain six candies every time they catch new Pokemon while professor will give away two candies for each Pokemon transferred to him. The Buddy System will also be a big advantage in this event since the Buddy Pokémon will help players earn Candy four times faster than normal.

The Halloween Event is the first in-game event of "Pokemon GO" so the rewards are really nice and special. A few of the ghostly Pokémon will also be seen often during the event period and trainers will be able to encounter Zubat, Golbat, Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Drowzee and Hypno more frequently.

Get into the game's spookiest event of the year and grab the chance to collect more candies. Meanwhile, the "Pokemon GO" update is now downloadable via Goole Play and iTunes.
